I use the Ogg encodings for my Linux netbook. The video quality is okay, but audio quality isn't enjoyable by any means. This is clearly a result of using the ffmpeg Vorbis encoder, which is mostly just an educational demonstration of how to program a Vorbis encoder with as little code as possible. It gives really bad quality and isn't ready for actual use. It's very unfortunate archive.org used this flawed encoder when creating the Ogg encodings given that perfectly fine and well-tuned encoders are available.

Cool, as long as the video quality is good, I already have all of my own noise. I will someday have time to make more music videos and am collecting source material.

Thanks for the quick repy.
